National Geographic Thinks It Has a Way to Survive Facebook’s Jungle
“It was like hell fire on there,” Eby Yielding says.
The octogenarian from Hemet, California, is talking about Facebook and the election of 2016, when she lost half her online friends because she supported Donald Trump. “It was humiliating, and a really sad time,” Yielding says.
There is one place on Facebook where she doesn’t talk politics, though: the chats around a livestream from Africa, National Geographic’s Safari Live. “I’ve made hundreds of friends chatting for years on Safari Live,” Yielding says. She even met a husband, Harold Yielding, who died in 2016 at the age of 69.
